The high restaurant count and great pool scene do this place proud. Plus, it's had a top-to-toe makeover for May 2015.
The Taurus Mountains and the Med make great backdrops to this place. Paths weave their way through jasmine-scented gardens to a private stretch of beach, and just outside the hotel grounds there’s a strip of shops.
This place pulls out all the stops on the restaurant front – there are seven altogether including a Mexican one on the beach. The pools aren’t far behind, with special mention going to the one with whirlpool baths.

The Hotel is very beautiful and offers a lot of opportunities for all kinds of travelers. It is not suited for adventure travelers but for couples/families who want to stick only to the premises of the hotel. The offer is good enough for everyone. Although I find it excellent I have to stress out some big minuses or things that people have to know before staying at Renaissance. First it is a resort and a lot of families are here. This implies families with children of all ages so if you are up for a relaxing holiday this is not the place to be unless you are ok with children screaming all day and parents screaming back. Of course this is not the hotels fault as some people do not have a suitable behavior for places like this. Second and last, in the beach you have to deal with all kinds of people so be aware that there are people that will put their seat exactly next to you or under you umbrella which for me is not acceptable. Another thing that happened to me was when I went to eat at lunch and came back and found my seat that had my towels on taken by another person. All in all a good hotel for a 7 night holiday. More
Been back from this hotel a week now and already missing it arrived late on Friday night check in was very easy shown to our room on the 4th floor of the main building and what a great room it was with a fantastic view overlooking the mountains room service was excellent with fresh towels and linen every day.Breakfast was great with loads of choice and looked after very well by our waiter Ihsan.We spent most of our days round the pool plenty of beds and you do not have to get up at 6am to save one like a lot of places i have been there are free fresh towels also available every day.Lunch time you had two choices at the sunset bar on the beach which is more like a snack bar but with great food or in the main restaurant bit cooler up there inside and the choice of food was unbelievable and the service was fantastic drinks flowing all the time and without asking thanks to Ihsan.Never had much to do with the animation team but they are working very hard all the time with guest who want to take part in the games.Evening meals in the main restaurant are great with more choice then you could ask for always something for everybody's taste and with Murat looking after us you never went without a drink we tried all the a al carte restaurants and every one was fantastic with great service and looked after very well by Ayse.We spent most our evenings down at the sunset bar nice and breezy with lots of different live music and all very good up at the Ba Amazing was a lady playing a piano which was nice and relaxing but the service by Tulay and Merve was outstanding and are a credit to this hotel.Overhaul holiday experience was amazing and with fantastic staff and great garden surroundings made it all the better we will definitely be returning back next year some time keep up the good work Renaissanc and thanks for a great holiday.More
A great family break only spoiled by civil unrest in Istanbul. Room was lovely. The sofa bed turns to a large double. Bathroom nice. Balcony small but holiday was cheap. Get down for proper breakfast. The late breakfast is disgusting. From the second you arrive TIP THE RESTAURANT STAFF. What you get for a 5 lira tip a night it totally premier service. Bar staff fly over to you to refill drinks. Pool area has the same problem of being too busy. Beach is a disappointing sharp pebble variety. Water gets deep to fast. Life guards everywhere. Porters good (tip)! Food samey so use the 8811 phone booking system that is kept secret. Be on the phone 9 sharp. The chinese restaurant is the best and the waitress is amazing. Entertainment I found made the night and the after parties good. Explore Kemer but use the free pickup services provided by the restaurants there. Go on the cable car. All in all a nice break just way to hot!!More

We visited the Renaissance 2 years ago in April and had a fantastic holiday with my boyfriends family we couldn't fault anything! So this year we decided to book again just the 2 of us for 10 nights and couldn't have been more looking forward to it we went to 4 a la cartes last time and regardless of the extra cost wanted to go to a la cartes nearly every night! I have to start with all the positives the refurbishment did not disappoint the rooms are much better and the hotel looks amazing could not fault it! The first night we arrived we ate in the buffet and noticed how busy it was people pushed in front of me all the time (not hotels fault but very rude) I asked for a wine and never received one so asked again and still didn't receive one! We also found at breakfast in 10 days no one asked if we wanted a drink when other people got asked daily! We had to get up at 8am to miss breakfast queues and to get a bed as the hotel has a no reserve rule but didn't do anything to enforce it when one whole family were reserving seats on the pier and some of them weren't coming down until 3pm! The other niggle is the booking system for the a la cartes we struggled to book and couldn't choose a time my boyfriend would have to go up to the room at 8:55 to sit by the phone and then some were full by 9:05 we felt sometimes like our holiday was on a time frame we didn't feel like we could lay in as we wouldn't get a bed or a booking! The last thing is the smoking in the hotel it says in the information booklet that smoking is forbidden by law but some nights we would be sat having a drink and every person around us a family of 7 one night were smoking in our faces! And safron was closed at lunch a huge disappointment as we loved it last time and it was very convenient! We don't want to give a negative view of the hotel but we feel with these tweaks that the hotel could sort out we will return as the hotel is fantastic in other ways a la carte food was amazing staff very good at outdoor bars 2 girls were brilliant! And lady in the Chinese and man in the Mexican (didn't get names) couldn't fault amazing service! DanielleMore
we booked a junior suite as we didn't want to keep running up and down to the beach or the pool for a sun bed. Room was nice maid was really keen had us up out of bed most mornings at 9 am so we decided to get up early just for her to turn up late that day lol. Seen as it was April when we went we were disappointed that there was a lot of the amenenties were shut still i.e the outside whirlpools eventhough the temps were in the high twentys everyday and even thirtys there were no shows on or any real entertainment at night except karaoke or a few fairly good bands but once they finished they let the local dj loose to clear the whole irish bar in the space of two songs . The trouble was he was playing boom boom music to a load of people whos average age was about 50 ish so they all went to bed disappointed told the dj this and he just said he was told what to play trhis went on for a week until the barman told him to change it which meant everybody stayed and danced Food was ok it was just strange that they kept on changing which restaraunt they were opening for dinner go to one then its shut and they have opened the one in the garden then the next day they would change it again Seen as the place was meant to be all up and running they still hadn't built the jetty they were still working on the beach when we left and that was mid April .A lot of the staff seemed to be new to the job but all of them were they nice and politeMore
